"No matter how off the map Mascarenhas' musical funhouse gets, with things running backward and jumping in at the most inappropriate spots, there is always the semblance of a song. His mixed madness has a definite lounge and pop bent to it - yet there is also a strong Portuguese/Spanish flavor. Think of all faux Spanish music that exists out there, then try to imagine what would happen if someone from the area began lampooning American culture with that inherent style...

Experimental, dark ambient, abstract - any of these terms work in describing his sound; only one song on this EP constitutes having a constant breakbeat, while the others drop you head-first into waves of droning soundscapes...
